Arrow Producer Discusses Comparisons with Batman Begins. If any of you have seen the season premiere of The CW’s Arrow, you may have seen the new Vertigo and his new drug, which draws some similarities to Scarecrow from Batman Begins. Well, you may not be the only one who noticed.
Its presence in [the premiere] was really designed to [show] that Oliver is struggling with the theme of identity. We certainly talked about that in the writers’ room,” he continues. “‘Are people going to think we’re doing the same thing as Batman Begins?’ But ultimately, for us, character and theme pretty much trump everything else and we were like, ‘No, we’re doing our own thing.
During the third season premiere of Arrow, Vertigo fought off against Oliver with a new drug that induces your worst fear into reality. It is quite similar to Scarecrow’s toxin that was used on Batman during Batman Begins. Fans have been wondering about the connection but rest assured, Marc put the questions to rest saying that there wouldn’t be any similarities beyond that.
